Two major airports – Hong Kong and Dubai – will soon begin to allow in-transit passengers.

Hong Kong International Airport, one of the world’s busiest, will partially resume transit services next week, the city’s leader said Tuesday.

“Transit services at the airport, which have been suspended since March 25, will partly resume on June 1,” Chief Executive Carrie Lam told reporters.

Meanwhile, Dubai’s Crown Prince Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed said that Dubai International Airport will also begin to receive returning residents and travelers in transit as of Wednesday, as the city announced it would begin to loosen restrictions and allow free movement.
